It’s a good time to start looking at the NFL playoffs and which teams have a chance at winning the championship. We may only be in Week 12, with three Thanksgiving games this week all featuring Super Bowl contenders, but the stretch is coming. You know how these things are. We’ll say “It’s only week 12,” but then it’ll be late December and we’ll talk about how the season went. With some legitimate contenders – and some sneaky pretenders – what teams can actually lift the Lombardy Trophy?
Mitch Moss and Polly Howard spent part of Tuesday’s edition of The Follow the money They talk about the teams they think can win the Super Bowl.

Picture of the AFC play-off match
Crazier things have happened, but the AFC’s odds show six teams in the running, as the Chiefs (+215), Bills (+215), Ravens (+600) and Dolphins (+900) appear to have the best chances of representing a conference in the Super Bowl. The Bengals (+1200) and Titans (+1400) command some respect according to predictions, but no other teams are below +2500.
Kansas City leads the AFC West by three games over the Chargers now after Sunday Night Football, the second-largest lead behind the Vikings in the NFC North.

The Eagles are still the +225 favorites to win the NFC, but the grueling 49ers are +350 after Monday Night Football’s win over the Cardinals. San Francisco doesn’t even have a division lead, but many think this is easily a top five team. The Cowboys (+450), Vikings (+600), and Buccaneers (+800) are all in single digits. The Seahawks are next at +2000, but keep in mind that wild cards have to hit the road, so there’s a huge advantage to winning the division.
